This is all I get when using your URL, Tom:

Not Found

The requested URL /cpdnboinc/non_num_arg.html was not found on this server.

Looks like a server issue but I can't currently see well enough to pursue it. Another moderator will be along...

I can see the task webpage and all the trickles have been listed there. But there is no task outcome label or time received, so it doesn't think the task was completed.

Assuming there are no remnants left listed in boinc manager under tasks or in the message log about this task, there isn't much that can be done. I've had a few of these over the past couple years as well where, for whatever reason, the webserver doesn't record the outcome of the task. It's possible the data can be used if everything was uploaded, but I'm unsure how the scientists grab data from tasks that complete but don't have an outcome labeled.

I've got one task in that state, which also should have completed on 18 November. Perhaps there was a server problem on that day.

I guess the recent server problems caused this... Completed task that appears as not completed.
